Everyone wants to look and feel as young as possible, for as long as possible. Fortunately, there are plenty of natural anti-aging remedies and activities we can integrate seamlessly into our everyday lives, regardless of how hectic they might be. The only thing standing in the way of truly looking and feeling younger is an individual’s desire to accomplish what they set out to do.
Sure, there is surgery and other unnatural means of anti-aging, but going about it the natural way is healthier and more gratifying. So, just what are the best natural anti-aging tips and tricks? Simply put, you can separate them into three piles: food, lifestyle and supplements.
The Anti-Aging Lifestyle
Exercise is and has always been one of the easiest and most essential anti-aging techniques. High-impact exercises should be avoided as you age, however, so consider reducing the amount you run and swapping that activity out for something with a reduced injury risk like yoga.
Meditation is another great anti-aging activity, since it aids with everything from memory to relaxation and stress-reduction. And don’t worry if you don’t know how to meditate. There are all sorts of books and audio recordings to get you started.
The Anti-Aging Diet
It should come as no surprise that the Western diet isn’t anti-aging focused. The best of the anti-aging foods are the leafy green veggies and fresh fruits that are filled with anti-oxidants. That’s because anti-oxidants help to flush the body of aging and disease-causing free radicals that lead to everything from wrinkles to cancer. Eating these healthy foods in their most natural, raw form is even better, since cooking them breaks down the vitamins and minerals.
Learn About Anti-Aging Supplements
Of course, not even a truly focused anti-aging diet provides all of the minerals and vitamins we need. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to supplement and beef up those anti-aging essentials.
Just a short aside about supplements: it’s important to seek out high quality, all-natural supplements. Those you find in the supermarket just won’t cut it. Usually, health food stores and green grocers carry the ones you should take.
Beyond a great, natural, high-grade multi, you should supplement further with anti-aging nutrients like: DHEA, Acai, CoQ10, Lutein, Morinda Citrifolia (aka proxacine), Resveratrol and Acai. (If you’ve never heard of proxacine or Morinda Citrifolia, perhaps you’ve heard of the plant from which it comes, the medicinal noni fruit).
